Benefits of Musli
The tuberous roots of this plant are considered alterative, tonic, restorative and useful in piles, debility and impotence. The Raja Nirghantu mentions two varieties of musli, namely, white and black. The properties of the white variety are said to be inferior to those of the black which is preferred for use as an alterative tonic.

Musli enter into the composition of several medicines intended to act as aphrodisiacs and restoratives. The following in an example; take the root of Asparagus racemosus (satavari), Sphoeranthus mollis (munditika), gulancha, seeds of Butea frondosa (hastikarna), and the tuberous roots of musli, equal parts; powder and mix. Dose should be about a drachm with honey or clarified butter, in the debility of old age.
The roots of Bombax Malabaricum and Asparagus racemosus are sometimes sold by the native druggists of Kolkata under the name of Safed Musli. The dried roots were probably considered a separate variety, namely, the white by the ancients.
